Mental Health Moments
Here's a great strategy shared by our School Psychologist, Katie Hoellwarth.
Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Think of a happy memory. It can be a party, a vacation, an event, or any time you were really happy. Continue breathing deeply as you remember all the details of your happy memory. Act as if you are in the memory. Try to identify anything you can see, hear, taste, smell, touch, or feel.
Have you made one? Megan would love to see it and share it in our update!
